We anticipate a shortfall of £1.5 million in our funding programme this year to resume current research and support vital new projects. This could have a catastrophic knock-on effect for stroke research and delay access to important new life-changing treatments that allow people to rebuild their lives after stroke.
It can be hard for stroke survivors and their families to cope with the financial aftermath of a stroke. Struggling to keep up with essential bills and other regular payments can mean extra stress and worry at what is already a difficult time.
After a stroke, people often want to know how their recovery could progress and what life might look like in the future. Right now, there aren’t many tools available to help health professionals to predict recovery, so we’re funding research to change this.
We know connecting with others affected by stroke is often the most important thing in helping to rebuild life after stroke. And groups across the country provide this vital support to stroke survivors and carers.
"I feel exhausted all the time since my stroke”. Sound familiar? You’re not alone - many people experience fatigue after stroke.
